The College of Liberal Studies awarded 15 students a total of $22,110.50 in spring semester scholarships as part of the Osher Reentry Scholarship Program. Students who have experienced an interruption in their education of at least five years and who were working toward their first undergraduate degrees were eligible. While this scholarship is coordinated by CLS, all eligible OU undergraduates could apply.

Sill. More than $313,000 in Osher scholarships have been given since the program began in 2008.
